  1. Hey all! I wrote another song over the past week or so that I like but have some mixed feelings on. I really like the power that the song brings, but the instrumental (I did not produce the backing track) has some parts that I'm afraid are distracting... However for the sake of this forum, I'd love to hear feedback on the lyrics, vocals/performance, and what you thought of the song overall (understanding that I don't have much liberty in changing the backing track). Thanks everyone for always being so helpful! Lyrics: “Gonna Remember Me” Remember all the nights that you said “I love you” Remember all the lies that I thought were true. Now all I can remember is the way you left me. And I’m hoping karma makes its way back to you. Why’d you call me late that night, with another lover by your side, baby I got some news for you... You, you’re gonna remember me, yeah Cause I was the one you needed, I was the one who knew the secrets of your body. You’re gonna remember me, yeah Cause I was the air you breathed in And you suffocating now that I am leaving. Looks like you found yourself another, oh go ahead and tell yourself it was for the better. But you, you're gonna remember me yeah, gonna remember me yeah, gonna remember, gonna remember… Remember all the nights that we stayed up talking Remember how we said that this would never end. Well the pages keep turning and the days go faster. And you’re stuck here wishing you could do it again. Why’d you call me late that night, with another lover by your side, baby I got some news for you... You, you’re gonna remember me, yeah Cause I was the one you needed, I was the one who knew the secrets of your body. You’re gonna remember me, yeah Cause I was the air you breathed in And you suffocating now that I am leaving. Looks like you found yourself another, oh go ahead and tell yourself it was for the better. But you, you're gonna remember me yeah, gonna remember me yeah, gonna remember, gonna remember… It’s funny how the focus changes, one minute you’re the victim, you’re blameless. Next minute I’m sitting on the beach, sipping iced-tea while you’re getting freaky in the sheets, with a new man. And you’ve been telling some lies, oh and I can see it in your eyes. Another day you’ll be crawling back to me cause the new guy, he won’t ever do it like me. You, you’re gonna remember me, yeah Cause I was the one you needed, I was the one who knew the secrets of your body. You’re gonna remember me, yeah Cause I was the air you breathed in And you suffocating now that I am leaving. Looks like you found yourself another, oh go ahead and tell yourself it was for the better. But you, you're gonna remember me yeah, gonna remember me yeah, gonna remember, gonna remember…
  2. ADVICE for mixing my vocals

    ok so i just recorded this really quick. i would really appreciate some advice on setting up and recording vocals, before i record it properly. so what steps did i follow recording 1. i set asio to 128 samples 2. i insert my mic into stereo 1 and 2 in this case. sometimes just into one insert then i pan the vocals with fl balance and a plugging called ADT 3. PUT IN MY BEAT 4. add fx to mix the vocals , im learning to be subtle with it and add final touches after the record because it cant be undone once recorded 5. i record 6.i add a light mix and then i export i'm not sure what level the mic should be etc aswell basically i need a crash course
  3. Hi again! Back with another song, this time with an added twist! Decided to throw some Español into the mix and give it a little extra flare. This song falls a little somewhere between "dance" and "pop" in my opinion. Would love to hear feedback on the vocals, lyrics, overall! Thanks as always Lyrics - “Scared of Happy”: They say the good die young, you living every second like it's your last one. Did you forget how to feel alive? Ay-ay And I could fly on jet planes, living all lavish sipping on champagne, but it ain't ever gonna be the same, without ya. Oh god I miss you too, I’m coming after you. Imma need you to believe me, believe it's true. Imma gonna sweep you off your feet, and take you where you wanna be. Baby won’t you tell me why you’re scared, scared of happy. Tell me tell me why, Tell me, tell me why you’re scared of happy. Scared of happy… Tell me tell me why, Tell me, tell me why you’re scared of happy. Ay, baby sabes que puedes llorar en mi hombro. Y que no tienes que escapar tus miedos. Vivimos la vida loca, para para, lo necesitas. Te digo que tu eres todo mi mundo, y que no puedo vivir sin ti. I promise you don’t need to be, scared of happy, happy. Let me be your lifeline, let me be the one that call at night. If theres an ocean between us, Imma be your Christopher Columbus Oh god I miss you too, I’m coming after you. Imma need you to believe me, believe it's true. Imma gonna sweep you off your feet, and take you where you wanna be. Baby won’t you tell me why you’re scared, scared of happy. Tell me tell me why, Tell me, tell me why you’re scared of happy. Scared of happy… Tell me tell me why, Tell me, tell me why you’re scared of happy. ¿Me diría si necesitas ayuda? Te prometo que va estar... mejor, mejor, mejor, mej-or Te digo que tu eres mi mundo, y que no lo puedo vivir en sintigo. I promise you don’t need to be, scared of happy, happy. Oh god I miss you too, I’m coming after you. Imma need you to believe me, believe it's true. Imma gonna sweep you off your feet, and take you where you wanna be. Baby won’t you tell me why you’re scared, scared of happy.

  5. Hello again, Out with another song, different than the others as usual Still unsure about how I feel about this song... sometimes I listen to it and vibe and other times its just "meh" haha. Would love to hear your thoughts on what worked and what didn't! Lyrics are below as well Lyrics: Its a small town feeling, something that those city kids sure been missing. You hear the talk, you seen her walk, she gets the whole place looking. There’s bout a billion other fish in the sea, but something tells me she’s the one for me. But every guy who lays eyes on her, says the same damn thing. She's so notorious, by the way she flip her hair. Notorious, for making everybody stare. Notorious, she’s just the girl next door, but she’ll make you think you’re living in a barbie world. Yeah, you the town’s most wanted, Oh go ahead and flaunt it. Yeah, every guy already know it, you’re notorious, just show it. She’s a force of nature, play it cool she gon’ stun ya like a laser. A Class A distraction, trust me when I say she’s only looking for reaction. Oh yeah, don’t waste your goods moves, save it for someone who will notice you. If somebody hasn’t told you, imma fill you in. She's so notorious, by the way she flip her hair. Notorious, for making everybody stare. Notorious, she’s just the girl next door, but she’ll make you think you’re living in a barbie world. Yeah, you’re the town’s most wanted, Oh go ahead and flaunt it. Yeah, every guy already know it, you’re notorious, go ahead and show it. N-O-T-O-R-I-O-U-S, you’re notorious so notorious Aim steady, close in on who’s next, you’re notorious so notorious I want, to be free, cut the shackles take your chains off me (come on). Lets face, reality, its better anyway. She's so notorious (oh yeah), for the way she flip her hair. Notorious (oh yeah), for making everybody stare. Notorious, she’s just the girl next door, but she’ll make you think you’re living in a barbie’s world. Yeah, you the town’s most wanted, Oh go ahead and flaunt it (flaunt it for me). Yeah, every guy already know it, she notorious, go ahead and show it.
  6. Ancestr - Into The Sun

    Hey all: Looking for some brutally honest critiques. I could probably use some singing lessons (and guitar lessons), but I like songwriting and do this for fun. Lyrics: Looking up into the sun Which provides power for things to run When it’s out we have good fun When it’s not we load our guns Running fingers through the sand In rural poppy Afghanistan Searching for understanding While new waves continue landing Fragments fly every which way Conditions hint at judgement day Sunny rays are out to play Manipulating cells like clay Fields of red like velvet beds While we lay elsewhere instead Citrus shaped grenades Quench my thirst like lemonade Looking up into the sun Which provides power for things to run When it’s out we have good fun When it’s not we load our guns Weapon jamming’s bittersweet Casings absent near the feet Motions need to be repeated Livid, anxious for what’s needed Covering my weathered face Beginnings of an age-old race Will it be them or me Shadows hiding in the trees Proceedings could have led to war Though that’s not what I came here for I came to create understanding And was barely left standing Looking up into the sun Which provides power for things to run When it’s out we have good fun When it’s not we load our guns Collecting dowry for the daughters Villagers running out of water And it’s only getting hotter So he chose to embrace change Setting fire to all his things For the cleansing that it brings He sat there looking unaffected While the body and soul defected It was a protest ahead of its time Some claim it was a passionate crime Matters not at all simplistic But every day there’s more enlisted Looking up into the sun Cheers.
  7. Hello all! I'm back again with a new pop song called "Girl Across the Bar". Tried some news things out as usual, but I love the bass-iness of the instrumental and hope that the lyrics I wrote fit well Thanks for listening, and tell me your thoughts! Edit: I worked with someone on this song and I was just responsible for the lyrics and vocals so I would particularly like critique on those sections since those are the ones I have control over at the moment Lyrics: You sitting real pretty over there, sipping on a drink while you’re playing with your hair oh-oh, baby You got my friends laughing at me, asking me ayyo whats it gonna be oh-oh. Oh am I outta my mind, because you’re something divine, and it kills me. I think I’m gonna make my move, because I wanna get with you, oh baby. Hey you, to the girl across the bar, you’re real cute, and I’d like to meet ya. I know I ain’t some superstar but we can still have fun, I know how to treat ya right. Bartender, get her what she like, swear I’m gonna treat you like a queen tonight. Feeling like I’ve known you for a long time, but baby it ain’t even been for a whole night. Hey you, to the girl across the bar, I’m so glad that I got to meet ya. Lets take a ride in a stolen car, drivin fast through the city with your head on my shoulder. Maybe its just for tonight, so baby here’s my number call me if you’d like. It don’t matter where we are, you’ll always be my girl across the bar. Let me ask you one thing, when you came for the night did you know you’d be looking for love? Maybe? Oh-oh, tryna start something new, hoping that somebody would fall for you, tonight… Oh when I walked in the room, tell me ya felt something too, like its magic. Feel like I’m running out of time, if I wanna make you mine, oh baby. Hey you, to the girl across the bar, you’re real cute, and I’d like to meet ya. I know I ain’t some superstar but we can still have fun, I know how to treat ya right. Bartender, get her what she like, swear I’m gonna treat you like a queen tonight. Feeling like I’ve known you for a long time, but baby it ain’t even been for a whole night. Hey you, to the girl across the bar, I’m so glad that I got to meet ya. Lets take a ride in a stolen car, drivin fast through the city with your head on my shoulder. Maybe its just for tonight, so baby here’s my number call me if you’d like. It don’t matter where we are, you’ll always be my girl across the bar. Take a chance cause you’ll never ever know if you don’t, This world is better when you’re not on your own. Nobody ever knows where anything goes, Got your eyes on me we don’t need to take it slow, slow, slow. Come on baby, living like its the last night of our lives. Like the things we do don’t matter till the sun rise. They say YOLO, you only live one life, Imma make the most of it imma take you in my arms tonight. Hey you, to the girl across the bar, you’re real cute, and I’d like to meet ya. I know I ain’t some superstar but we can still have fun, I know how to treat ya right. Bartender, get her what she like, swear I’m gonna treat you like a queen tonight. Feeling like I’ve known you for a long time, but baby it ain’t even been for a whole night.

  10. The Trip

    A song I wrote a year ago, the day after a friend killed himself. An Idea for a song. Simpel home recording (on a Boss BR600). Two guitars, 1 voice. The trip: A perfect life starts with a fear you never felt before When you know you're leaving but you don't know what's ahead. Can a perfect day start with a pain you never thought that you could bare? Yeah all of this might have its reasons. Chorus: For if you never felt this pain and fear, how would you know? How could you? For if you never made this trip before, how could you know? It's a perfect journey To a place you never been before. Yeah you know you're leaving but you don't know what's ahead Can a perfect joy start with a tear you never spelt before? Could that be the start of?.. yeah might be the start of. Chorus... Bridge: Travel light my friend, don't carry to much weight There’s read ahead and it might not be straight. A perfect end starts with a fear you never felt before. When you know you leaving a you don't know what's ahead. Bridge (2X)... But if you never made that trip before, how could you know.

  17. "All I Know" Original Song

    I work as a crisis counselor with at risk youth. In the time I've spent doing that job I am convinced that all that is needed to see the world change into a Utopian future is to make sure that just one generation of children is fed, educated, and cared for humanely. Every child deserves the chance to be what they were meant to be.LyricsWe all break wide eyed to this worldA clean slate for a new life unfurledWe must take care of the young Show them life's just a song yet unsung.Cause dark in hearts grows the sameLike weeds in fields with no hand to tameAnd all the pain the mother's drain in tears for youth can be regainedIf love is all that I feelAll that I know All that is realIf love is all that we feelAll that we knowAll that is realStarting out is a perilous taskOne best done without wearing a maskHiding how we can truly beIs how the young stay locked without dreamsDark in hearts grows the sameLike weeds in fields with no hand to tameAnd all the pain the mother's drain in tears for youth can be regainedIf love is all that I feelAll that I know All that is realIf love is all that we feelAll that we knowAll that is realAll it takes for this world to changeIs raising the youth who live lives of painGive them hope for a brand new dayA world in which we’ve grown up to say
  18. Liquid Gold

    Liquid GoldLyrics:Another night Another empty glassAnother try to find a love that lastsFind them here Drowning lives awayDarkness fears what they become one dayLonesome souls on lonely roadswho seem to lost their wayBury hears in liquid goldin hopes someone will stayLonesome souls walk lonely roadsIn hope to find their wayGild their hearts in liquid goldTo shield them from the painGoin down a path to me unknownLook around lonely hearts on loanBroken eyes like Death on standing feetTroubled lives friends with pure defeatLonesome souls on lonely roadswho seem to lost their wayBury hears in liquid goldin hopes someone will stayLonesome souls walk lonely roadsIn hope to find their wayGild their hearts in liquid goldTo shield them from the painWe all shield the pain in our own waysSome cant shield the pain that comes their wayWe all break apart in our own waysSome are save from the love of those who stayedBut for those who live alone :heart, mind, and soulRaise your glass and drink today In Hopes youll find your ownAnd don't hate what you’ve becomeThe journey Still unfoldsKnow the paths you walked todayMay still bring you homeBeen spending a lot of time in the bars and thinking about the lonely people and their search... This is a song born of it. Craig Ferguson talked about, in his book, a time when he was so depressed he was going to kill himself. But he was a raging alcoholic got drunk and passed out before he could do the deed. It was looking back at that time that he realized the alcohol was the only thing keeping him alive in a weird way. A song about self medication.
  19. Hi , i have lyrics that i would like someone to make into a "song" PLEASE ;-) , i work quid pro quo, , i am happy to write lyrics for a tune of yours in return . EVERYBODY LIES V.1. We are defined by our deceit Even though we try to be discreet A lie is a promise we can't keep We all have a secret , a little secret Pre Chorus. Everybody lies It's just a human failing Hiding behind a disguise Makes it easier to lie Chorus . Everybody lies Everybody lies You can see it in their eye's Everybody lies V.2. We are defined by our deceit Is it human nature to cheat A lie is a promise we can't keep Do you feel the loneliness of conceit Bridge . Hiding what you really feel Only works in your mind Trying to be someone your not Is just living a lie Pre Chorus. Everybody lies It's just a human failing Hiding behind a disguise Makes it easier to lie Chorus. Everybody lies Everybody lies You can see it in their eye's Everybody lies OUTRO Everybody laughs Everybody cries Everybody lives Everybody dies Everybody lies
  20. So, since I've been told I have a odd, tenor voice in a positive light, only one in a negative light, I want to know if there is a higher chance of vocalists with a odd kind of timbre being successful? Is it not or is it a coincidence that the list of vocalists below made it even with a voice that's not necessary the voice of a Angel? Geddy Lee (Must I have to say it...Rush) Patrick Stump (Fall Out Boy) Tim Armstrong (Rancid) Axl Rose (Guns N' Roses) Dexter Holland (Offspring) Brian Johnson (AC/DC) Greg Grffin (Bad Religion) Serj Tankian (System Of A Down/Solo Artist) Something tells me the A&R's look out for a different type of timbre. Let me know what you think.
  21. Just curious, how did this work? and how are my vocals? what should I work on? https://soundcloud.com/h4zel3yes/last-love-song-someone-like-you
  22. The Lighthouse - 2015 Version

    This is a song I originally worked on back in 2011. I wanted to re-work it and use the knowledge of mixing and orchestration I've gained over the last 4 years. I'm not responsible for the vocals or piano, just the orchestra and mixing. I'm interested in any and all comments as always but specifically interested in comments on the quality of the mix and the orchestration. The Lighthouse

  24. Hello everyone! I was honored to make a remix out of the pre-mixed vocals of Bonnie Legion, singer from California. I hope You enjoy it! I will be very grateful for every feedback, no matter how negative will it be. To fulfill the melody and make vocals more variable, I cut vowels from the vocals, so there is no certain word that you can hear, just vowels, perhaps „the eye“ can be recognized, but that was just a coincidence. Here are the lyrics: I am gonna run to the outside... (Vowels Vocalic Lead) I am gonna run to the outside... (Vowels Vocalic Lead) Lost my faith on the inside 4x[i am gonna run to the outside] Lost my faith on the inside I am gonna run to the outside... 3x[Lost my faith on the inside] I am gonna run to the outside 4x[i am gonna run to the outside] Lost my faith on the inside I am gonna run to the outside Lost my faith on the inside I am gonna run to the outside (Vowels Vocalic Lead) You can check out her songs: https://soundcloud.com/bonnie-legion You can also check out and pick up her vocals: https://soundcloud.com/bonnie-legion-vocals
